    The NC and the PDP in J-K are the two sides of the same coin who are and have supporting the Kashmir separatist Sunni Islamic Jihadists, both parties ultimate aim is to establish another Islamic Caliphate but they call it 'Kashmiriyat', 'wishes of Kashmiri people', 'peace dialogue',...blah..blah....blah..which the Indian citizens would never accept nor allow because the J K is and has been an integral part of India since the 1947. The best option for these Kashmir separatist Sunni Muslims is to emigrate to the other Islamic Caliphate Pak carved out of greater India in 1947 because the Muslims hated Hindus and India or face the Indian armed forces bullets.
